History

2008-09: Durocher scored 7 goals with 20 assists and 16 PIM for Gloucester in the CJHL.

2009-10: Durocher scored 15 goals with 11 assists and was -5 with 26 PIM in 66 games as a rookie with Kingston in the OHL. He scored 2 goals and was +3 with 4 PIM in the Frontenacs seven-game first round playoff series loss to Brampton.

2010-11: Durocher increased his offensive output while playing sound two-way hockey in his second season with Kingston (OHL). In 63 games he scored 14 goals with 23 assists and was -5 with 26 PMs for the Frontenacs. In five OHL playoff games he had 1 assist and was -5 with 2 PMs. Durocher was traded to the Soo Greyhounds in June 2011.

Talent Analysis

Durocher skates well at 6’3, and has the hands and skill to have a shot at the next level, but he needs to add more weight and muscle beyond his listed 183 pounds before he can be considered for the NHL. He has improved his offensive skill set somewhat, though he is still a project at this point.

Future

Durocher will play in the OHL this season, and probably the next. He is a player that projects as a bottom-line role player, but is still a few years away from contributing at the NHL level.

Hot List in Flames

by pbadmin
on
The Calgary Flames have answered a few questions in regards to which of their second-ranked prospect group will be getting a good shot to make the team with the release of their expansion draft protected list on Tuesday. However they may have raised more questions at the same time.

As little as five days ago the general assumption was that the Flames would protect two goaltenders, Fred Brathwaite and Jean-Sebastien Giguere. The surprise trade of Giguere to Anaheim was the first in new GM Craig Button’s administration and has many people scratching their heads. Very few people are outraged at the move but it has left many wondering what the team is up to. Giguere, ranked Calgary’s top prospect for much of the last two years, has neither been a disappointment nor good enough to change the “goalie of the future” designation to the “goalie of the present”. Despite that, the situation seemed perfect this year, Freddie was the number one and Giguere would be the season-long understudy. Button said that he made the trade because he did not want to lose a good fourth defenseman and eighth forward.

Bubba was drafted by the New York Islanders as their fifth selection (109th
overall) in the 1996 NHL Entry Draft. Bubba was captain of the 1996 NCAA
champion Michigan Wolverines and was named to the 1998 CCHA All-Star Second
Team and to the 1998 NCAA championship All-Tournament Team. Bubba is a solid
stay at home type of defenceman, but is known to join the rush occasionally.
He rarely gets caught out of position and is a good skater and a puckhandler.
Has a good hard shot with a quick release. Clears the net well
and sees the ice well when starting a breakout from his own end. Bubba is a
proven winner and with time in Milwaukee to polish his skills he should
see time on the Predators blueline.
Andrew was named IHL’s US-Born Rookie of the Year (McKenzie Trophy) for
1999-2000 season.

On Monday the Wild started to get a little more active in hockey by making a couple of trades.

Trade #1:

Andy Sutton, a third round selection in 2001, and a seventh round pick in this year’s draft from the San Jose Sharks for an eighth round selection in 2001 and
future considerations. Andy Sutton is a 1998 Graduate of Michigan Tech University. He was also named WCHA Co-Defenceman of the Year in 1997-98 and All-WCHA Second Team. The last two years Sutton split time between San Jose and and the Kentucky Thoroughblades
of the AHL. We will have to see in October if Sutton stays in the big show.

Button named GM

by pbadmin
on
The choice of Craig Button as the new general manager was one of the most well thought out decisions made by the Flames organization in a long time. His strong player personnel abilities are what Calgary needs because of their inability to spend copious amounts of money in the free agent market. Words have been chosen carefully by this man when he speaks to the public. He refuses to use words such as small market and financial restraint while saying that his team will be competitive through attention to detail and a positive attitude toward their future endeavors.
